Once again, congratulations to my amazingly talented class who put on an unforgettable show that the Royal Shakespeare Company would have been impressed by. I hope you all enjoy sharing the filmed performances with family and friends. Please feel free to add a comment. Hopefully, you can just about hear the children above the gusts of wind. As mentioned in an earlier post, our literacy work this half term has been based on Shakespeare’s popular comedy. Through drama, the children explored characters, plot, themes and use of language. Over the past few weeks, 4B turned into skilled scriptwriters. As a group, they had to rewrite one of three scenes while thinking carefully about features of play scripts.
What a creative class we are! Once again, I would like to thank all of the adults who joined us today in 4B to help out with our art afternoon. Our rainforest inspired art activities look fantastic! The colour changing chameleon spinners, feathered parrots and our chalk rainforest creature designs will all be great additions to our rainforest scene.
Congratulations to my amazingly talented class who put on an unforgettable show that the Royal Shakespeare Company would have been impressed by. I hope 4B feel incredible proud of themselves. Despite a short amount of rehearsal time, 4B pulled it off and thoroughly enjoyed themselves along the way. All’s well that ends well!
Our literacy work this half term has been based on Shakespeare’s popular comedy. Through drama, the children explored characters, plot, themes and use of language. Over the past few weeks, 4B turned into skilled scriptwriters. As a group, they had to rewrite one of three scenes while thinking carefully about features of play scripts. The children realised the importance of stage directions so that their actors knew how to move and speak when delivering their lines. An enormous amount of effort went into memorising their scripts, creating props and finding costumes.
Thank you all for joining 4B to watch their performances of Shakespeare’s comedy ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ this afternoon. It was lovely to have such a supportive audience. I will endeavour to upload each of the filmed performances over the next few days so you can share your child’s wonderful achievements with family and friends. In the meantime, please enjoy looking through the slideshow of photos below.
4B had an educational, exciting and thoroughly enjoyable day at Foxburrow Farm. Watch the slideshow to see what rainforest themed activities we took part in.
Please encourage your child to access the online games and activities below so 4B can continue to confidently deal with decimals. The weblinks work best using Internet Explorer not Google Chrome.

Over the last few weeks, 4B’s literacy work has been based on Shakespeare’s play ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. The children have turned into playwrights and written a short play script for one of the scenes in Shakespeare’s popular comedy. Now the children have finalised their play scripts, they are ready to start making props and rehearsing for our end of topic performance in the Secret Garden. Copies of the script will be sent home tomorrow (20.03.17) so that 4B can start learning their lines. We would like to invite all parents and carers to make up the audience on Wednesday 29th March 2017 at 3.00pm.
We are also hoping that you can join us for our Art Day on Thursday 30th March at 2pm. The arts and crafts created will be added to our rainforest scene outside the classroom.
World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) reading.
In 4B, we put our powers of persuasion to good use. Each group was assigned a villain from children’s literature: Big Bad Wolf, Voldemort, Wicked Witch of the West, Miss Trunchbull or The Grinch. Miss Bozier challenged the class to present a strong case/argument about why their deplorable character deserved the prestigious title of ‘World’s worst villain.’ The children put their powers of persuasion to excellent use.
In order to promote and instil a love of reading, 4B also decided to create, perform in and film their own chorus of a music video. To make this a reality, the children turned into songwriters and rewrote Meghan Trainer’s ‘All About That Bass.’
Other activities enjoyed by 4B today were:-
Well done to my creative and imaginative class for making such a tremendous effort with their costumes today! They all looked superb! Kayci’s potato character has become an additional member of the class as well.
